Fighting Back Against Crime In Guatemala
This short documentary examines the fight against corruption, impunity, crime and violence in Guatemala that was led by former Attorney General (and now Secretary for Multidimensional Security of the OAS) Ms Claudia Paz y Paz. By improving and renovating the judicial system with a gender based approach, Ms Paz y Paz was able to reduce impunity in the country and therefore reducing the sense of insecurity and homicide rates. Her belief that no one is above the law led her to a colossal fight against former president Efraín Ríos Montt who’s now proven guilty of crimes against humanity and genocide. Her legacy in Guatemala is an example for other countries of Central America on how to reduce violence and strengthening democracy in their political institutions.

E-Lecture on "Sport, violence and crime prevention"
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime experts analyze in this E-lecture the impact of sports and sports events on citizens’ behavior. In economic, social and environmental conditions that lead to segregation and poverty sports work as a tool for integration and socialization, teaching those who take part of the game values such as humility, fair play and self-control. Sports events have also a positive impact on vulnerable communities as they can provide opportunities of employment and social cohesion through the encouragement of communal pride and camaraderie. Still, those same events can lead to violent situations due to the psychological effects of masses in individuals. It is necessary then a policing approach that focuses both on prevention and reaction, on transparency and inter-agency cooperation.

Unveiling a New Superpower
As progress is being made on improving the living conditions for children aged 0-5, the challenges they face in the next years represent a huge barrier for their free development. From domestic violence as a mean of parenting to child labor and forced recruitment, all forms of violence root in the normalization of violence. Implicit norms of behavior respected or tolerated by the society let crimes against children go unpunished, then a change in mentality is needed to transform this situation. By changing the material conditions of vulnerable communities it is possible to facilitate this change: supporting single parents with the care of their children, empowering young leaders to educate their neighborhoods and gathering up-to-date data on the issue are all effective strategies to end violence against children. Susan Bissell has developed six (6) strategies throughout her experience all over the globe that tackle the issue in a comprehensive manner.

Nesta entrevista, a GloboNews fala com Robert Muggah (diretor do Instituto Igarapé) sobre o aumento da violência na América Latina e especialmente no Brasil. A desigualdade, o acesso a drogas e armas deixam a vasta população jovem da américa latina nas mãos de gangues e uma atmosfera propensa ao crime e à violência. Esta situação deteriora-se ainda mais quando a resposta das instituições governamentais é centrada em medidas corecitivas, como os programas "mano dura" no Brasil e na Colômbia. É necessário envolver toda a sociedade e reformular as estratégias policiais que os latino-americanos usam. Em vez de dividir territórios e isolar comunidades inseguras do resto da cidade, os modelos de planejamento urbano e inclusão social devem pensar em espaços compartilhados em que as mulheres e as populações jovens possam interagir de forma segura e saudável
